DETERMINANTS OF JOURNEY TO WORK FLOWS: SOME EMPIRICAL EVIDENCE

Theoretical models of residential location make the assumption that the crucial determinant of residential location is the employment linkage with the place of work. While the literature dealing with the journey to work is quite extensive, very little empirical evidence exists on the determinants of travel behavior by sex. The purpose of this paper is to provide some empirical results on the influence of various factors on the journey to work behavior by sex. The model was estimated using Zellner's seemingly unrelated regression technique and the empirical results confirm, in general, the theoretical model with significantly different influences across sex. /Author/
